How to land a dream job

Job Search

Gainful employment: the golden ticket we all crave and need but at times seems utterly unobtainable. Having a job is more than just a way to put money in the bank: it also affects everything about how we live our lives. Jobs provide routine, install good habits, and are central to having a healthy social life.

Searching for a job seems like a mountainous task if you have been out of action for a while. Even if you are newly unemployed, getting back in the game can feel daunting to us all. Job searching has come a long way from handing in your hand-written CV to local shops and businesses, and the market is more competitive than ever.

There are two leading channels that modern job hunters use to find employment: online job searching and networking. It is all about utilizing the people you know or finding someone you can, out there somewhere on the world wide web. Here are a few tips on the best ways to do both.

 

Online Job Searching

  • Keep your profiles up to date, active, and professional.
  • Put time into structuring a balanced CV.
  • Avoid putting all your eggs in one basket- be open to multiple job prospects and search across multiple platforms.
  • Rejection can be disheartening, but do not let it dull your fire. Use an unsuccessful application to improve the next one, and never give up!

 

Finding a Job Through Networking

  • Don’t be scared to ask- everyone was in your position at one time or another.
  • Get yourself face-to-face- networking with people you know is more effective if you talk in person.
  • Go prepared- don’t just ask for a job without showing some value. Try to show your contact why it is a good idea to give you an opportunity.

 

Summary

Dedication and determination are essential to successful job searching. They are also both tools that can help you thrive in the role you do eventually land. There are always jobs available, and one of them is bound to be for you.
